“Midnight Secrets” took the readers on a ride of destruction, betrayal and loss that Isabel Devlaux endured and lived through. As secrets were revealed and her brother comes back from the dead, Lisa Marie Rice takes us into the secret life of Jack Devlaux through her latest release “Midnight Fire”


Surviving the Washington Massacre took Jack Devlaux from the living to the darkness of shadows to stay alive and trying to unravel the mystery of the Washington Massacre. His tryst with dark shadows reveal layers of betrayal and plans of terrorist acts that threaten the innocent…and one such person of interest is Summer Redding.

As a political journalist, Summer has been thrown into some dangerous situations, but nothing like her quest to search for answers to the Washington Massacre. Her job takes her to the doorstep of death, as her entire life is destroyed and burned to the ground. Saved by her presumed first crush, Summer and Jack are on the run trying to outwit death and stop a terrorist that would change the course of the world.

Lisa Marie Rice does what she is brilliant at – writing stories of danger and evil, family and friends, support and love; adrenaline pumping and spine chilling rides of some with amazing narration. Each book can be read as a stand alone, with the characters from the previous stories making an appearance, which is such a pleasure. And she makes sure that Jack and Lore burn the midnight fire to its fiery heights.

Time flies on wings

Toddler to a lady so fine

Yet memory only sings

Of a little girl mine

Bountiful in hearties

Taller and faster

Funnier and smarter

Each year brings a new you

Humble, kind and true

Adios to silly girl games

Hello to boys with aims

Drop-off and pick-up

No more your kind of cup

Learning permits and mania

Cars and driving hysteria

Impressed we are of your toils

Never afraid of change

Angel on the home range

Sixteen different ways we love you

And many more to the moon blue

You are a special pleasure

A parent’s priceless treasure

Talk about addiction and that would be the The Dare Series by Carly Phillips!! The Dare siblings are as addictive as vintage wine, sinful as black forest cake and utterly scrumptious with their faults and all.


Book seven the series rocks with Carly Phillips signature narration and weaving a story of long lost love and friendship that finds way back to Avery Dare and Grey Kingston. High school sweethearts, life separates them taking them on different paths. But with fame also comes a time that makes one realize what’s missing in life and famous rock star Grey Kingston wants his Avery back.

With a turbulent childhood that never seems to go away, Avery Dare has made a name for herself as a professional blogger and a woman who has braved the truth of a second family of siblings. Her heart forever belongs to Grey and his love and strength gives her courage to face the demons of a past that threatens her present and future.

As Grey and Avery romance their way to falling all over in love with each again, jealousy and despair seem to threaten their relationship. With family rallying around them, Avery and Grey make a beautiful couple that rocks our world of reading.

Carly Phillips as always brings out the nuances of a family, the dynamics of having stepsiblings and the emotions that portray the fears and insecurities surrounding them. She pays special attention to the characters giving them individuality. Avery’s confrontation with her father is something to read and enjoy.

Can’t wait for the next Dare to fall at the heels of love!

Once in a while it’s just utterly serene and delicious to read a romance without too much frills and shrills. A quite romance with just the hero and heroine, finding their way with each other, connecting with their thoughts and feelings, a few supportive friends and an uncomplicated family thrown into the mix, there’s nothing more romantic and enchanting than falling into a pure, simple love story.


The duo sisters of Melanie and Shawna have been one of my all time top favorites and have read all their books; the Sloans being one of their most sizzling and charming creations to date. And the Hope Falls Series continues its journey of romance and entertainment with perfect kisses, secret crushes and happily-ever-after.

“Secret Kiss” is such charmer of a story and even more dazzling are Adam Dorsey and Jane Marshall. Ex-CIA and used to living a life of undercover and deceit, all Adam wants is to take it easy and put his nerdy brain to work on his software. But fate had a different plan and throws him into the path of his destiny, Jane Marshall. Lovable, innocent and ever helpful Jane crushes on Adam and circumstances makes Adam her boyfriend.

As Adam tries to put a closure to a thorny past, Jane infiltrates into his heart with no hope of escape. Acting as her boyfriend sparks the flames of desire and the proximity only ignites the passion both can’t resist. As lust heats the sheets, humor coats their days and family fuels their relationship, it is only a matter of time for love to build a nest in their hearts.

Full of humor and warmth, friendship and support, witty banter and family teasing, “Secret Kiss” is just perfect to heal a heart, bring a smile to the lips and fill us with hopes of goodness all around us.
